Has anyone traveled or is from Anchorage? I am taking my celiac 5 year old and wanted to know where to shop for gluten-free stuff when I get there? I am covered for the plane ride but we are traveling to Seward and doing all the fun touristy things. I am hoping to just go shopping when we get there rather than packing a extra suitcase with food- Any ideas or names of markets/ resta/grocery places that I need to find?
Thanks
Thank goodness she likes fish!

I do know of a pretty decent natural foods store in midtown Anch, but not sure of the name right now. (I have a celiac niece in Anchor, dx 3 yrs ago) Using YahooYellowPages should find it easily. (I'd do it but I'm surfing on a phone) [Aw heck, I haven't talked to them in a while so I called. The food store is Natural Pantry, but there's also a good section w/ gluten-free at the big chain store FredMeyer's. There's an Outback in Anch and an actual Thai restaurant that uses gluten-free soy sauce!! My 11yr old celiac niece LOVES the Thai Curry there and insists it's not spicy and would only come spicy if requested. The default is mild enough for an 11yr old. Maybe not for a 5yr old. The place is called Chang Mei.(sp?)]

Back to Natural Pantry:
I know they have my brown-rice tortillas.
Niece Aileen days great cookies and asstd snacks like pretzels etc and frozen pizzas (not that that does YOU any good) and hmmmmm what else did she say? Anyway it seems to have a good variety of gluten-free.


I highly doubt Seward has a specific natural foods store, but I'm sure many fresh raw ingred are available all over.

It should be easy enough to hit that Anch store b4 heading down the Kenai.
In fact, I believe it's not far from the airport. (It's not a stretch to think you're renting a car and driving to Seward is it?)


I could get Anch restaurant suggestions if you'd like. :) [done!]
I don't know Seward well enough, but I'd bet any non-fast-food place will do well w/ a simple fish dish.

Celiac 1st diagnosed as a toddler, in the 60s. Docs then, between bloodletting & leech-tending, said "he'll grow out of it" & I was back on gluten & mostly fine for 30yrs.

Gluten-free since 12-03
Dairy-free since 10-04
Soy-free since 5-07

Thanks so much! We aren't big into restaurants-but thanks- I am glad to hear of Fred Meyers and The Natural Pantry!
